Luke's Local Reinvents the TV Dinner

A Boxed Meal You'll Dive Into

luke's local meal boxes!

When your dad is Tom (as in “of Maine”), high expectations are natural.

And organic, too. Luke Chappell is doing for weekday meals what Dad did for brushing teeth: He’s going green.

Luke’s Local, Chappell’s breakfast and lunch joint at the Hillsdale Caltrain station, has just launched meal boxes, a combo of fresh-from-the-farm organic produce and Luke’s seasonal prepared meals. Think red curry yellowtail tataki, slow-roasted Thai pork and shrimp salad, and spring vegetarian paella made by a different Bay Area chef each week.

There’s even a version of a late-night burrito that won’t make you hate yourself in the morning. And a little extra dough gets you a bag of Blue Bottle Coffee beans.

It appears the apple doesn’t fall far from the toothpaste.

Pickup at La Victoria Bakery, 2937 24th Street, at Alabama Street (415-642-7120 or lavictoriabakery.com); Luke’s Local, 3333 South El Camino Real, at East Hillsdale Boulevard, San Mateo (650-341-2771 or lukeslocal.com).
